How much to fix?

Just wondering about the rear panel that where damaged. I was going to buy a new door frame and move the guys over since the shell was the only thing damaged. Is this panel something I should just let a shop handle?

It will depend on the condition of the B-pillar, as to whether or not the car is even repairable.
That, and the quarter panel replacement, would be best left to a reputable body shop to determine the cost, and to do the repairs.
Go around to some shops in your area, to get their opinions on the extent of the damage, and a repair estimate.

If insurance offers to total it then total it and get a clean replacement. Unless you have a legit shop tell you 100% the frame was not tweaked AT ALL, then a new door and let a body shop fix the rest.
